Milk Thistle

 

Milk thistle extract has long been valued for its role in ensuring healthy liver function and it is also a powerful antioxidant.1-10 This extract consists of silibinin and other similar compounds. Until recently, researchers believed silibinin was the most biologically active ingredient in milk thistle extract. Highly advanced extraction technology has now enabled scientists to isolate silymarin constituents and test their efficacy against various cell lines. Among the compounds tested, a silymarin constituent called isosilybin B proved to be the most efficient in maintaining healthy cell division.11
